Dear Firefox,

Will there ever be an option to quickly skim through parts of a webpage using "option+down" or "option+up" like there is in Chrome? It helps scrolling through long websites.

Thanks a lot, R

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

A.

So, i have the following interesting problem. I have a new laptop, brand and model mentioned above. Which is part of a domain in a small company. Other devices in the same domain don't have any issues and they use the same software on them, so i doubt it is a software based problem.

Now to the juicy bits: 1. Firefox 32Bit works fine. Absolutely fine. Was pre-installed by Fujitsu and then removed by me. 2. Installed the 64Bit Firefox 88.0.1, same version that was just uninstalled. 3. Firefox starts rather slow, does not open any websites, struggles to open the top menu bar, does not open settings at all. 4. Doesn't matter if i used a profile from my previous machine, or a fresh profile created on install or through the profile manager of Firefox.

Even manually deleted the whole Mozilla folder from %appdata% to see if any lingering data was the cause. Still, only the 32Bit version wants to work properly.

Any advice on how to troubleshoot the cause?

I can use other browsers without images being blocked in yahoo mail but when I try and send an attachment as an image in the body of email instead of showing image it just shows text "inline image".

When I use other browsers and send an attachment as a image in the body of the email it shows the image without any problems.

When I receive an email with scanned images instead of seeing the image it shows text "scanned image".

The problem started in version 88.0 and continues in 88.0.1

Website won't load sometimes

Hi, i have a strange loading behavior of some websites, that i created.

As an example, this URL: (it's an German website) https://mc-2021.hanno-fair-impuls.de/impuls-08-06-jahresevent-harzer-marketing-treff-marketing-speaker-abend.html

The page loads sometimes immediately and sometimes in doesn't until i hit refresh. And after i hit refresh it loads direct. Sometimes if the page is loaded, some resources like CSS files are not loaded completely , so the page looks broken, because of those missing CSS files. I cannot really describe the problem, it seems like the page is stuck in some situations and sometimes not.

In Chrome this behavior never happens and the URL opens direct. (I tested this very often in Chrome) Also there is no server problems like to much connections or load problems of the server.

Hopefully you can help me or point me to the right direction to find the reason of this problem.

Thank you.

Greetings Jay

Use the current FF version 88.0.1 - Question about the bookmarks toolbar:

After the FF repair are the icons largely anonymized? They work fine - I'm just missing the typical website icon. For example the four-color ebay license plate. - How can I update the anonymous trademarks ??? 

Firefox-Sync is activated, but I've got no changes to the bookmarks-icons. Thanks for the tip ...

Hello,

My last month's browsing history disappeared (April 2021). It was there for a few days in May 2021 and I could see April in the "History" profile right under the "This Month" folder -as it should be. But then before I could get back to reviewing my April history, it disappeared. I believe this may have happened because my Windows 7 had alerted me that I was running low on diskspace while downloading... I maxed out my diskspace without realizing it may have cleared my browsing history to free up storage... maybe,maybe not...

So, in a panic of course, I view forums that talk about pulling up my Mozilla profile.

I try typing: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ in Windows and only find a single JSON file that I am not able to make sense of in an online JSON viewer...

I also tried installing a Firefox add-on SQlite viewer but I am having trouble finding what forums are calling "places.sqlite"... There is no SQ.LITE Manager under the Firefox 'Tools' tab...

I also tried to find the 'index.dat' file in a free online download of a dat viewer but i get this message: "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded' after droping the dat file into it... I will include a screenshot of this...

Picture 1: Dat viewer Picture 2: The only file appearing after %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ entry into windows.... Picture 3: SQ.lite viewer.... Picture 4: JSON Viewer...before i drop JSON file Picture 5: JSON Viewer...after drop JSON file

Check mate. I don't know what else to do. I just need to view my entire month of April 2021 browsing history because Firefox crashed and did not restore my "restore previous session" a few weeks ago... I've never seen firefox erase browsing history so fast...

Please...please help. God bless.

Problem: the mouse can't drag up and down scrollbars of a specific website This website is not an ordinary website, but a small pop-up window for temporary preview inside the website. It may be a website in a specific environment simulating the mobile terminal. However, other browsers, such as Google and 360 browser, do not have this problem. Please ask the official to solve it. Thank you.
